6 Comments for the Dry Socket Home Remedy


A few people on hear have swore by clove oil I don't recomend this as I have read the leaflet and it states not to put it on the gum but the whole point of this forum is how to get rid of dry socket. All tho it dose get rid of tooth ace if u dab it on the tooth it dose not get rid of the pain from the dry socket I just used cotton wool soaked in salt water I did this for 2 day then left it out as it seemed to be healing and now I only have the tiniest hole there and int been about 8 days I will update u all on how it goes but I do not recommend putting clove oil on the gum as this can damage the gum and it burns like mad and tast like shit thanks to all who have wrote on hear I might not have been able to sort mine out if it wernt for the comments on hear!!!

Hi, I noticed you mentioned about the leaflet not mentioning clove oil on the gum...but if you truly do have a dry socket, there is no is exposed bone where the tooth WAS...this bone being exposed is where the pain is. If you can't see the off white bone in the hole where you tooth was, you probably do NOT have a dry me...I've had a dry socket each and every time I've had a tooth pulled...and that's been 14 !


You may have inadvertently applied Clive oil directly to the affected area without an additional carrier oil. Adding a drop or two to a tbsp of coconut or olive oil is the only way to go. Otherwise, yes, it will burn.
Dentists often use clove tape for dry socket also.


iv took some many bc powders the pain is so bad i dont wish this pain on anyone


Learn how to spell, it would help!


i was going to complain about the additional headache caused by reading this, but then i saw the name was tweak. should have known better


If the toothache involves a molar at the back of your mouth, you can bite down gently on the cotton ball to keep it in place. Leave it there for as long as possible (but don't go to sleep with it in your mouth.) Pain relief should begin quite rapidly.

Side effects: Undiluted clove oil inside the mouth can causing burning, tissue or nerve damage, and pain. In large doses, clove oil taken orally can cause vomiting, sore throat, seizure, difficulty breathing, kidney failure, or liver damage. Clove oil shouldn't be applied to broken skin.
